Georgetown’s very first public art mural to go through the Georgetown Arts and Culture Board’s new Commercial Mural Process has been approved by the City and will be implemented on the west wall of Gus’s Drug on University Ave.
Local artist Sarah Blankenship designed the mural and will coordinate with community volunteers to come out and help her paint the mural!
Ark Pharmacies is sponsoring the new public art mural on the side of its business, Gus’s Drug, in Georgetown. Gus’s Drug has been a part Georgetown’s community since 1955, and the business owners would like an opportunity to continue to give back to the community by adding a mural on the side of the business at 702 E University Ave that highlights some of the great aspects about Georgetown. This will remind locals that Gus’s is still a vibrant part of the business community, create visual interest to a currently blank wall and provide plenty of photo ops for locals and visitors.
“Greetings From Georgetown Texas” will be the primary lettering on the left side. Within the letters in “Georgetown”, the following will be highlighted:
G – Lake Georgetown
E – Public Library
O – Blue Hole Park
R – Downtown Buildings
G – Field of Honor
E – Shotgun House
T – Palace Theatre
O – Southwestern University
W – GISD’s Hammerlun Center
N – Williamson County Courthouse
The right side of the building will be simpler, highlighting only poppies with the lettering “Red Poppy Capital”. This is imagined to be a great photo opportunity site for families for many occasions and celebrations.
More information about opportunities for community engagement to help paint the mural is coming soon…
